Sulphate groups, if present, are located mostly at C-4 of (1→3)-linked fucopyranosyl units, and appeared to be very important for the anti-herpetic activity of this polymer.

It is demonstrated for the first time that dengue virus 2 enters insect cells by receptor-mediated, clathrin-dependent endocytosis, requiring traffic through an acidic pH compartment for subsequent uncoating and completion of a productive infection.
